Hanifa Abubakar, a 5 year old girl has been reportedly kidnapped at Yankaba, Kwanar Dakata Unguwar located at Kawaji in the Nasarawa Local Government Area of Kano State. This little girl was said to have been abducted to an unknown destination while coming back from an Islamiyya school known as Dahiru Bauchi, on Saturday, December 4, 2021.
Her uncle, Suraju revealed that the incident occurred around 5 pm, with the kidnappers driving in a tricycle, locally called Keke Marwa. According to him, these kidnappers had promised to give Hanifa and some other children coming from the Islamiyya school a lift home but Hanifa was taken away instead.
Suraju also revealed that it was the other children who witnessed the incident who told him how Hanifa was abducted.
He narrated how it happened saying;
“They closed from school around 5:30 pm; the distance from her home to the Islamiyya school is not far. So children normally trek to the school in groups. After dropping the children off, they then asked Hanifa to enter again for an ‘extra’ ride, and then zoomed off with her”
Suraju revealed that he had filed a report at the Kano State Police Command but the whereabouts of Hanifa was still unknown. He also said that the kidnappers were yet to contact her family members.
Similarly, a 15-year-old Junior Secondary Schoolgirl has been abducted and is being hypnotized to marry one of their leaders. Harrison Gwamnishu, a Human rights activist, raised an alarm that a 15-year-old secondary school student allegedly abducted in Enugu has been forcefully converted to Islam and is about to be married off in Kaduna. The Human Rights’ activists has said that the minor identified as Chioma Chinedu was abducted and converted to Islam in Anchau village of Kaduna State. As a matter of fact, he alleged that she has been hypnotized by her abductors who have refused to let her go. To be clear, Harrison said that although nobody is against any religion, Chioma doesn’t deserve mental torture and forced marriage.
He said in part;
“15-YEAR-OLD JSS 2 STUDENT CHIOMA CHINEDU HYPNOTIZED AND ABOUT TO BE MARRIED TO A SUITOR IN KADUNA STATE.
Because it’s us, this will not make a headline. The story of Chioma Chinedu, 15-year-old JSS 2 student from Enugu State, abducted and converted to Islam in Anchau village Kaduna State should be a worry to us. As at this moment, Chioma is nowhere to be found as her abductors have refused to let her go.
She has been Hypnotized and about to be married off to a suitor #retrievechioma. I wish to commend the Igbo Communities for their effort and will continue to collaborate together till she’s out and get rehabilitated. Nobody is against any religion but Chioma don’t deserve this mental torture and forced marriage. Hypnotize is to influence, control, or direct completely, as by personal charm, words, or domination
